Thursday, January 21, 2010
Outstanding taste and ease of preparation are what make this recipe one of our favorites.
Open 2 packages of Oriental Flavor Top Ramen and remove flavor packets. Heat butter in skillet and add the chopped onion. Saute onion 2 minutes. Add milk, cream cheese and 1 flavor packet. Cook and stir until mixture is smooth.
DO NOT BOIL. Add carrots, zucchini and salmon and simmer for 5 minutes. At the same time, cook the noodles with the seasoning from the remaining flavor packet for 3 minutes. Drain liquid. Add the ramen noodles to the salmon and vegetable mixture. Toss gently and serve immediately. Now that's a winning taste!Ingredients:

A night spent in prison might be something to be down about. In the book of Acts, Paul and Silas were thrown into jail for spreading the gospel, but they didn’t act like sad sacks sitting on a block of stone, way over in a corner weeping all alone.
Instead, they threw a party in the county jail. You should’ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing! Paul and Silas knew that this was no time to get the blues – no, this was time to do the Jailhouse Rock!
They praised God, singing hymns and praying. In fact, everybody in the whole cellblock was listening to the jailhouse rock!
Talk about a rocking tune: the entire prison started shaking until the foundation of that place came loose and the doors flew open. Everyone was free!
But it might not have happened without that first note of praise. Take a note or two from Paul and Silas: even when things look their worst, remember to praise the God who can deliver you from any situation. Even if He doesn’t start working immediately, it’s good to know that God is aware of what’s going on and has the situation under control.
So don’t you be no square! If you can’t find a partner, use a wooden chair! Just dance and sing praises to God. And just like Paul and Silas, dance the Jailhouse Rock!
Like I said, we'll get a good photo of Madison with the king before this month is out. Until then, I'm out of here - I think I'm going to go get me a jelly doughnut. Thank you very much.

Take a look at this calendar to your right. It now hangs on the playroom wall, an early Chinese New Year gift from Nana. The panda bears are nice: Madison has a huge collection of panda bears that you'll see here on this blog one day. Mommy and Daddy have been collecting panda bears here and there - not every one we see, but on occasion we'll see something neat that we'll pick up. Madison even has a panda bear umbrella that we purchased at the Beijing Zoo. That was the year "Kung Fu Panda" came out, so we were seeing a lot of our friend the panda bear. Both the panda bear and the ladybug are our mascots of the adoption journey and as a result, Madison has a fairly substantial collection of both.
